A tip from High Country Crime Stoppers led to the apprehension.

The suspects are all in their early 20s. They’ve been charged with seven counts of misdemeanor graffiti and one count of damaging personal property.

Total damages are estimated to be $10,000.

According to the Associated Press, it is not yet known if the women have acquired attorneys.
